How to treat female alopecia
Although hair grafting has become popular among men, hair transplants are a permanent, safe and guaranteed solution to combat female alopecia. So are the multiple hair treatments that we develop, such as stem cell autotransplantation, capillary PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), carboxytherapy, mesotherapy or pharmacological treatments.
Thanks to them you will see how your hair grows back healthy and strong, just like it did before. The procedures of Instituto Médico del Prado the Prado Medical Institute are always carried out personally by Dr. Espinosa Custodio, as well as the diagnosis and follow-up. Personalized treatment is one of the hallmarks of our clinic.
Hair transplant has become popular in men, as they are more likely to suffer from androgenic alopecia. However, it is equally effective in women. Recovering density in certain areas may require a visit to the operating room due to the loss of the follicles.
If you think of hair grafting, you usually imagine a shaved head to carry out the intervention. This is something that can be traumatic, not only for women but also for men with long hair. But there’s nothing to be afraid of. If the doctor you trust has the requisite experience and skill, he will be able to perform a satisfactory skin graft with-out shaving.
In the case of Doctor Espinosa Custodio there is no doubt. He has already accumulated dozens of transplants with this technique and, as with shaving, offers a guarantee for 100% satisfactory results. This insurance will be valid as long as the patient follows all the post-surgical recommendations: washes, medication, care…
Thanks to the hair transplant technique without shaving, the aesthetic recovery will be faster. And it is that with this technique only a part of the occipital area (donor) is shaved and it will be hidden with the rest of the hair. You just have to be careful with the hairstyles. In this way, the patient will be able to recover their social and work life faster.
It should be noted that the capillary graft is especially indicated for patients who meet a series of specifications. These are, among others, that a transplant of less than 2,500 grafts is needed, localized alopecia is present and they want a progressive change. However, it will be the doctor who will evaluate the patient in the diagnostic consultation and determine if it is possible to carry out this technique.
Capillary biostimulation using Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is one of the methods most used by Dr. Espinosa Custodio in his treatments due to its high efficacy. PRP manages to improve capillary density and strengthen hair growth in just a few sessions.
It consists of extracting blood from the patient to obtain her plasma through rapid centrifugation. Then, we enrich it with platelets and apply it to the area to be treated by means of microinjections. The objective of PRP is to restart blood circulation in the scalp, one of the most important factors behind alopecia.
In capillary carboxytherapy treatments, Doctor Espinosa Custodio will infiltrate, with a special machine, carbon dioxide into the most superficial layer of the scalp. The objective is, as in other treatments, to reactivate blood circulation under the scalp, but also to revitalize the tissues thanks to the effect of neovascularization.
With carboxytherapy we manage to recover hair growth and density in cases of alopecia in women. We also achieve that the hair recovers its natural color, the generation of new capillaries and the formation and replacement of collagen and elastin in the area affected by baldness in women.
If you are looking for natural hair treatments, mesotherapy can be your ally. It consists of administering vitamins, minerals, peptides and essential amino acids for the nutrition of the hair under the skin of the scalp. Its effects are the enrichment and strengthening of all the hair we already have.
Mesotherapy does not cause any pain and has been used in aesthetic medicine since the late 1980s. In addition, as it is made of natural components, we manage to avoid rejection in all scenarios. If you are interested in mesotherapy, you can also find out about its use for facial care, with which we reduce the signs of aging and hydrate the skin.
Whether as a complete treatment for mild cases or as a complement to other measures or a hair implant, there are various drugs that collaborate and greatly in the fight against alopecia in girls. However, not all of them are useful for any type of alopecia, so it is essential that a specialist doctor prescribes them after a proper diagnosis.
The most common effects of female baldness drugs are the annulment of the enzymes responsible for hair loss or the vasodilation of blood vessels to restore circulation to the scalp.
Stem cell treatments
Androgenetic alopecia can also affect young women. With only 50cc. from the patient’s fat we were able to obtain enough adult mesenchymal stem cells for our hair restoration treatment. Through its activation and administration in the area affected by hair loss, we get the follicles in the resting or falling phase to become healthy again so that they grow strong and with greater capillary density.
Dr. Espinosa Custodio is a specialist in this field of medicine, which must be performed by a doctor with experience in a minor outpatient surgery room authorized by Health.
And if these treatments are not enough to fight against your female alopecia, we can always resort to a hair transplant, the definitive solution against androgenetic alopecia in women.
